Rihanna bags Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year honours.

Rihanna may be best known as an R&B superstar, but on Wednesday she was named the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year for her charity work.

The 29-year-old singer from Barbados will be given the award in person on campus on February 28, the university announced.

“Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados,” Harvard Foundation director S. Allen Counter said.

“It is for these philanthropic initiatives and other acts of compassionate sharing that the students and faculty of the Harvard Foundation chose to honor Rihanna with the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year Award,” Counter said.

The singer joins an illustrious roster of past recipients that includes former UN secretary general Ban ki-Moon, Pakistani activist and Nobel Peace laureate Malala Yousafzai, and singer Lionel Richie.

Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has sold more than 200 million records, won eight Grammy Awards and scored 14 number-one hits. She is also celebrated for her style and collaborates with Puma on a clothing line.

Rihanna Slams Beyoncé Feud Rumors Over Grammy Nominations

The “Work” singer wants everyone to “drop this topic.” She dismisses the suggestion of her having a beef with Jay Z’s wife, adding, “We don’t need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated, and the Grammy Academy agrees!”

Rihanna accidentally fuelled longstanding rumors of a feud between the women on Instagram yesterday after Grammy nominations were announced. It all started when RiRi “liked” a photo on a fan account that read,Congrats and all to @badgalriri and all for her 8 Grammy nods but tbh f–k them because they snubbed her for Song of the Year and Album of the Year… I think they didn’t want her tied or passing someone else *cough cough* [lemon emoji]… f–k you Grammys.”

With her nine nominations for Lemonade yesterday, Beyoncé is the most-nominated female artist in Grammy history. Bey is also the artist with the most nominations this year; Rihanna, Drake, and Kanye West tied for second place with eight nominations each.

Rihanna Wants To Record Music With Drake’s Arch Nemesis Meek Mill: Revenge?

This would be some serious shade! Now that Rihanna has split with Drake and he’s hanging with Taylor Swift, she’s looking to hit the recording studio with his rival Meek Mill. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details on how she’s not only hoping to make killer new club bangers, but she’ll be getting sweet revenge on Drizzy.

Rihanna thinks people need to put a little more respect on Meek Mill‘s name. She heard his new mixtape and thought it was on fire! She loves it. She loves how raw and passionate his words areand definitely wants to put things in action so that she can get some studio time with him and brainstorm on a collaboration,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. We definitely can’t blame her after hearing his amazing Dreamchasers Four.

“She feels that together the two of them could really make some stuff that would make hip hop pop! That seems to be the new thing, stepping outside the box, working with different artists from different genres and merging the two and making music. Rihanna loves that idea and will not be outdone by anyone,” our insider adds.

It would also be a total swipe at her ex Drake, 30, who has been beefing with Meek for a year and a half now. While he totally won their rap feud with the diss tracks “Charged Up” and “Back To Back,” having the woman that he professed his love to in front of the entire worldwork with his enemy Meek would come as the ultimate diss! RiRi is already upset that Drake has been hanging out with her pal Katy Perry‘s nemesis Taylor Swift, 26, and they might be working on new music together. Working with Meek would be such a total clap back on so many levels!

Rihanna And Drake Broke Up Again, See Drake’s New Girlfriend

Drake and Rihanna have reportedly split up again.

#Aubrih are “not exclusive anymore,” E! reports. Though they’re “still in each other’s lives,” and “still love each other,” E!’s source explains, “their schedules have gotten in the way.” They’re seeing other people right now, even.

And Drake, specifically, is said to be dating model India Love — the two have been spotted out together in Toronto, and have apparently been “hooking up” for several weeks now.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BJHZbpfhOEP/

This is where things get a little twisted, as E! notes that a former boyfriend of India’s was rumored to have cheated on her with Rihanna back in 2014. A subtweet rebound? Drake might well be that pressed/petty (in a sense, it’s part of his charm). And hey, remember that Instagram RiRi shared over the weekend about how all her exes are flops?! Turns out it was very likely addressed a certain someone in particular.

Rihanna Named Global Ambassador for Childhood Education

Rihanna is “Work”-ing on education.

The global superstar’s Clara Lionel Foundation has partnered up with Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen on a multi-year initiative to support education across the world.

Through this push, Rihanna hopes to advocate for more than a quarter of a billion children who are not currently in school as well as about 330 million students who aren’t learning in the schools they’re in.

screen-shot-2016-09-26-at-3-03-14-pm

As GPE’s new Global Ambassador, RiRi hopes to reach more than 60 developing countries, prioritizing those with the most need, including children in conflict and crisis areas.

“I feel strongly that all children everywhere should be afforded the opportunity of a quality education,” she said in a statement. “Therefore I’m proud to announce Clara Lionel Foundation’s partnership with education advocacy leaders like the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen. Working together, I know we can amplify our efforts and ensure that millions of children gain access to education globally.”

Julia Gillard, GPE’s Chair and the former Prime Minister of Australia, says she’s excited about partnering with Robyn Fenty.

“We are thrilled that Rihanna is joining GPE as Global Ambassador to campaign for every child to be able to experience the power of a quality education,” she said. “We have a once in a generation opportunity to build the commitment of world leaders to education, and Rihanna’s voice and travels to countries where GPE is actively engaged, will be hugely influential in improving the lives of girls and boys everywhere.”

Rihanna’s been advocating for education throughout her career. Earlier this year, for instance, she announced her new scholarship program through the Clara Lionel Foundation, which was founded in 2012 as a tribute to her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.

Funny Tweets Trying To Figure Out If Rihanna Rejected Drake At The VMAs

Everyone watching the 2016 VMAs on Sunday night was on the edge of their seats after Drake confessed his love for Rihanna while presenting her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. With nothing to lose, Drake went in for the kiss, and Rihanna seemingly swerved to avoid — although from different angles, it actually appears that the pair shared a quick peck before they ended up in their awkward embrace.

Beyonce Storms Video Music Awards, Rihanna Gets Lifetime Award

Beyonce dominated the MTV Video Music awards on Sunday, prowling the stage with a 15 minute medley from her powerful “Lemonade” album and taking home eight statuettes, including the top prize – video of the year.

On a night when women ruled, Britney Spears returned to the VMA stage for the first time in a decade, and Rihanna performed four times to mark her lifetime achievement award.

Beyonce brought the house down at New York’s Madison Square Garden, stringing together five of her “Lemonade” album tracks about betrayal, revenge and female empowerment in a song and dance routine that brought a long standing ovation.

VMA organizers had announced only three hours before Sunday’s show began that Beyonce would perform. The singer arrived on the red carpet accompanied by the mothers of three African-American men who have died at the hands of U.S. police in the past two years.

Her politically charged “Formation” beat Adele’s 2015 comeback single “Hello,” Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Kanye West’s sleeping nude celebrity look-alikes in “Famous” for video of the year.

She also won best female video and prizes for choreography, editing, and long form video in the awards that are voted on by fans.

Where Beyonce was angry and bold, Spears, 34, dressed in a sparkly gold leotard and matching over the knee boots was slinky retro pop. It was the “Toxic” singer’s first time on the VMA stage since her humiliating 2007 performance when her personal and professional life was falling apart, and follows the release of a new album last week.

Rihanna, 28, sang 13 of the biggest hits in her 13-year career, including “Rude Girl,” “Diamonds” and “Only Girl in the World.” She was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award by Canadian rapper Drake – with whom she has often been romantically linked.

“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I’ve looked up to her even though she’s younger than me,” said Drake.

Fifth Harmony, the five-girl group that won TV talent show “The X Factor,” took home 2 “Moonman” awards.

Kanye West, who has often hijacked the live VMA show, presented a new video for his single “Fade.” West preceded the video with a rambling, improvised speech that touched on poverty, his wife Kim Kardashian, his long-running feud with Taylor Swift, and violence in black neighborhoods.

“We are undeniably the influencers, the thought leaders,” he said, before screening what he called a “piece of my art.”

Many of pop music’s biggest names, including Justin Bieber, Britain’s Adele and Taylor Swift were absent on Sunday.

Leonardo DiCaprio & Rihanna Reunite At Coachella 2016 Party

Leonardo DiCaprio and Rihanna were photographed together at the Neon Carnival, an annual, star-studded, after-hours party near the 2016 Coachella music festival in California Saturday, its second day. The 41-year-old Oscar winner wore dark aviator sunglasses, a baseball cap and a handkerchief tied around his neck, while the 28-year-old singer sported silver sparkling sunglasses. DiCaprio was seen speaking into Rihanna’s ear as they stood in the noisy crowd.

The two have never commented on the status of their relationship.

At the event, sponsored by The Levi’s Brand and Re/Done | Levi, DiCaprio and Rihanna also spent time apart. The actor arrived around 1 a.m. through a back entrance. He sipped Don Julio tequila cocktails at a table, hung out with several people, including women, and danced and sang along to TLC‘s “No Scrubs,” E! News has learned.

Rihanna arrived later, also through a back entrance, and was seated next to DiCaprio’s table. She was seen dancing with two girlfriends. He later made his way over to her to say hello. During the night, DJ Politik played Rihanna’s hit “Work” and the crowd went wild.

DiCaprio and Rihanna had first sparked romance rumors in January 2015, when were spotted flirting at a friend’s birthday bash at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. Days later, they reunited and appeared cozy at King of Leon musician Caleb Followill‘s birthday party. The following month, the two packed on the PDA at Rihanna’s birthday bash in the Hollywood Hills.

This past January, several reports said DiCaprio and the singer reunited again, at a Paris nightclub. They were seen again at a New York City club in February.

DiCaprio was spotted alone on Day 1 of Coachella Friday, wearing a different baseball cap and handkerchief, puffing on an e-cigarette.

Rihanna Gets Real About Beyonce Rivalry, Reveals Her Biggest Regret In Vogue

The 28-year-old singer stuns on the April cover of Vogue, sporting a show-stopping Tom Ford sequin dress and a slicked-back ‘do. Rihanna opens up about everything from her new album, Anti, to her love of fashion with the publication, and sets the record straight on reports of a feud between her and Beyonce.

The magazine points out Beyonce’s surprise release of her single “Formation” during Anti’s week climbing the charts as just one reason some fans have been pitting the two superstars against one another, but the “Work” singer isn’t bothered in the least.

“Here’s the deal. They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative,” Rihanna says. “Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”

Obviously, Rihanna has enough going on in her own life as it is. She’s in the middle of a 63-city world tour, and says her grueling schedule makes it a challenge to be in a relationship.

“My schedule is so crazy right now,” she laments. “It’s definitely going to be a challenge when I do decide to pursue a relationship . . . but I have hope!”

But she couldn’t be prouder of her latest album, even if it turns out to not be as popular as her previous work.

“It might not be some automatic record that will be Top 40,” Rihanna acknowledges. “But I felt like I earned the right to do that now.”

Rihanna’s latest music is definitely personal, judging by the way she describes her songs. For example, “Higher” is about a woman in a not so healthy relationship. “You know he’s wrong, and then you get drunk and you’re like, ‘I could forgive him. I could call him. I could make up with him,'” she explains. “Just, desperate. We just said, ‘You know what? Let’s just drink some whiskey and record this song.'”

Her song “Work,” which Ariana Grande recently poked fun of on Saturday Night Live thanks to the not easily understood chorus, is inspired by her home culture in Barbados.

Aside from her music career, Rihanna also has plenty going on in fashion, including a new Puma collection, and Fr8me, an agency representing stylists and hair and makeup artists, which she co-founded last year.

And it turns out her biggest regret in life is fashion related. Rihanna recalls her infamous completely sheer Adam Selman dress she wore to accept her Fashion Icon award at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards — for which Tom Ford called her “one of the most beautiful women [he has] ever beheld”– and reflects that she wishes she would have changed one thing.

“I just liked it better without the lines underneath,” Rihanna says about donning nothing but a nude pair of undies underneath the intricate Swarovski-encrusted creation. “Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra? I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled. That’s the only regret I have in my life.”

Kim Kardashian Allegedly Restricts Kanye From Speaking To Rihanna

Reports say that Kanye West has distanced himself from his longtime protégée Rihanna— and it’s all because of his furious and envious wife, Kim Kardashian!

“Each and every time Rihanna is on the scene Kim gets jealous and threatened,” an insider tells Radar, adding, “It’s unbearable for all concerned.”

The insider admitted that West, 38, and 27-year-old Rihanna “do have a very close bond” and that the two “flirt around each other a lot.”

“This is just how Kanye is with everyone,” insisted the insider, dismissing 35-year-old Kardashian’s fears.

However, “That’s not cutting it with Kim, who’s paranoid they have this crush on each other and that one day Rihanna could steal him away.“

Rihanna Beats Kanye As Most Talked About Designer On Twitter

Despite selling out Madison Square Garden for his Yeezy Season 3 show, dropping a controversial new album and making headlines for his increasingly frequent Twitter rants of late, Kanye West did not generate the biggest buzz during New York Fashion Week.

According to data collected by Twitter, Rihanna’s debut collection for Puma dominated the #NYFW conversation. Puma and Rihanna both took the number-one spot for most talked about brand and most mentioned celebrity, respectively. Plus, the image Rihanna shared from her inaugural runway show ranked among the week’s most viral photos with over 17,200 retweets and 35,500 favorites.

Kanye may claim to be “50 percent more influential” than some of history’s most famous figures, but it’s RiRi who’s commanding the attention of the style set this season.

Rihanna Says She’s Too Busy To Have A Steady Relationship

During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her new album and, Rihanna said she has no time to be in a steady relationship because pf her very busy schedule..

‘I’m single right now. And it’s not that I’m like ”Oh, pro single. Yes, I hate men.” I just think that I just have so much on my plate that I can’t even find the time to entertain a steady relationship or anything serious. Or even a text. Right now it’s just crazy.’ she said
The singer looked amazing in a little green skirt and cropped green blouse with a revealing neckline. More photos after the cut…

Rihanna Is One Of The Reasons Rita Ora Is Suing Jay Z’s Roc Nation Label

Rita Ora’s decision to sue Jay Z’s Roc Nation record label was reportedly sparked by her feud with Rihanna,The Sun reports.
It’s alleged Rihanna, who signed to Def Jam in 2005 when Jay Z was President before later moving to Roc Nation, played a part in Rita not getting treated as a priority at the company.
Rita also reportedly found out Rihanna had been offered all the hit tracks before she was, even though
she’s still yet to make a follow-up to her 2012 debut.

This was said to be the final straw for the star who is now suing the rapper’s Roc Nation label, which also has the likes of her ex Calvin Harris on their roster…

“Rihanna has never liked Rita and has been using her power at Roc Nation accordingly. This is the main reason the label’s execs have been uninterested in putting effort into promoting Rita,” a source told The Sun.
“Songs that might be submitted to her are automatically given to Rihanna, who may then hold them for months before deciding she doesn’t want them. The fact that Rita’s ex Calvin Harris is on their management books hasn’t helped either.

The source also said the label didn’t stop the millionaire DJ when he reportedly banned her from using songs he had produced for her album following their break up.

When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist. As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company,” it said.

Chris Brown To Travis Scott: ‘I Could Get Rihanna Back In A Heartbeat’

Chris Brown has confidence with a capital C. Breezy is warning Travis Scott not to get too attached to Rihanna because he know he could have his ex back in a heartbeat.

He’s got a big ego! Chris Brown, 26, believes he’s the modern-day Casanova. The Royalty artistisn’t threatened by any man’s relationship with Rihanna, 27. In fact, Breezy says he could snatch her any time he wants from beau Travis Scott, 23, HollywoodLife.com is EXCLUSIVELY reporting.

 

As TMZ reports, the ANTI artist and T. Scott have been quite the item. They’ve been spending loads of time together clubbing and the pair are about to tour together for Ri’s new album. Chris, however, isn’t fazed. His friends say Rihanna is his and his only. “If Chris really wanted to be with her today, he knows just what buttons to push,” a source close to Breezy reveals to HollywoodLife.com. “It’s been a rap between Chris and Rihanna for the past years. Any man who really thinks he has a chance with Rihanna is out of his mind. She will always love Chris and the two of them know this, man!”

Rihanna must be the catch of the year to have these two studs swooning over her. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Travis wants to have a few words with Chris on Dec. 4 as the two will be performing at Power 106’s Cali Christmas concert at The Forum in Inglewood. “Travis isn’t the type of dude to have enemies or beef with anyone but he will with Chris if dude doesn’t back off,” a source close to Travis revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. The “Maria I’m Drunk” rapper wants to “have a man-to-man convo with Breezy and straighten a few things out” because he “doesn’t think it’s cool” Chris is still pursuing RiRi.

Katy Perry Named Forbe’s Highest-Paid Woman In Music For 2015

Singer, Katy Perry is the highest-earning non-boxer on Forbes 2015 Celebrity top 100 list, thanks mostly to her Prismatic World Tour. Perry grossed more than $2 million per city over the course of 126 shows 75 of them overseas while pulling in an astounding $20 per head in merchandise sales.
She also pads her coffers through deals with Coty, Claire’s and Covergirl, and from a new Perry-themed mobile game due out soon which combined to earn her $135 million this year, tens of millions of dollars ahead of the rest of the women on the list.

“I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” Perry told Forbes. “I’m an entrepreneur… I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”

Taylor Swift earned the No. 2 spot on the list, nabbing $80 million. Her own tour, the 1989 World Tour, helped her cinch the high ranking, but couldn’t measure up to her rumored rival Perry’s haul. Her album “1989” sold more than 3.6 million copies and was the top release of 2014.

Top 10 female earners:
1. Katy Perry – $135 million
2. Taylor Swift – $80 million
3. Fleetwood Mac – $59.5 million
4. Lady Gaga – $59 million
5. Beyoncé – $54.5 million
6. Britney Spears – $31 million
7. Jennifer Lopez – $28.5 million
8. Miranda Lambert – $28.5 million
9. Mariah Carey – $27 million

Beyonce & Jay Z Secretly Separated For A Year Amid Rihanna Affair Rumors

Even Beyonce and Jay Z go through rough patches in their relationship. An author who is writing an unauthorized biography about Bey’s life is claiming that she and her husband separated for a year when there were rumors that Jay cheated on her with Rihanna!

Beyonce, 34, and Jay Z, 45, have been through their fair share of break up and separation rumors, but this one is scandalous! In an authorized biography about the 34-year-old’s life, the author, J Randy Taraborrelli, 59, wrote that the powerful music couple reportedly went their separate ways for about a year when it was rumored that Rihanna, 27, and Jay Z were hooking up. Read on for more details on their supposed split!

The break up reportedly happened when Rihanna released “Pon De Replay” in 2005, roughly a year after Jay first received a demo of that track. It was then that the cheating rumors started. “Beyonce didn’t know what to make of this, and it actually ended up breaking them up for a time,” J Randy told Entertainment Tonight of the alleged split on Oct. 22. “They spent maybe a year apart from each other because Beyonce just wasn’t sure what to make of the situation with Rihanna.” But, the 34-year-old got over the rumored infidelity because she went on to marry the music mogul in 2008 and have a child with him.

Beyonce & Jay-Z Heading For Divorce!?
 

The 59-year-old writer even added that the two popstars are on good terms. “It’s safe to say that Rihanna and Beyonce are friends,” J Randy said. Apparently the rumors of Jay and Rihanna’s affair was reportedly made and spread to the media by publicists to boot the 27-year-old singer’s profile. Even though this whole incident happened years ago, the author believes that Rihanna’s presence is the source of some of the couple’s fights. That includes the brawl between Jay and Beyonce’s younger sisterSolange, 29, at the Met Gala in 2014. 

J Randy claims he spoke to some people close to the “XO” singer and revealed the brawl happened because Jay wanted to go to Rihanna’s Met Gala after party but she refused to. “It was a whispered married couple’s argument that would have gone by completely unnoticed had Solange not overheard it,” he said. “Solange has always been Beyoncé’s biggest protector.” But, even the award winning author claims he’s not sure that’s what caused the fight. “I think it’s safe to say the only people who know for sure what happened are Bey, Jay, Solange, and the bodyguard who were in the elevator,” J Randy said. Well, what can we say? Sometimes crazy things happen when there’s a billion dollars in an elevator.

Rihanna Shows Up Pantless For Date Night (PHOTO)

Riri showed up at Hooray Henry’s nightclub in West Hollywood this weekend, wearing only an over-sized Puma track jacket and Puma slippers. Her pants were noticeably missing, though her hair and makeup were on point.

 The bizarre outfit may have been some sort of Puma promotion as she is the face of the athletic brand.

Also clubbing that night was Rihanna’s new man Travis Scott, though the two were pretty careful not to get photos together.

Protesters Interrupt Rihanna’s Perfume Launch

Rihanna had a violent run-in with an old foe — angry protesters interrupted the singer’s perfume launch.

Rihanna was at a Macy’s in Brooklyn on Monday for the release of her new perfume line “RiRi” when the fur-huggers lashed out. You can see from the video — security quickly steps in to remove the protesters but not before Rihanna took notice.

This isn’t the first time the singer has been criticized for wearing animal products — she was attacked by PETA in 2012 for wearing snake-skin boots.

Rihanna And Chris Brown Together! Karrueche Tran Heartbroken About It

Chris Brown, 26, and Rihanna, 27, have recently connected and Karrueche Tran, 27, isn’t too happy about that. Even though Chris and Karrueche are over, an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the former couple’s reunion is upsetting for the petite model. Mainly because it confirms Kae’s past suspicions about her ex’s relationship with Rihanna while he was still dating her.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time the 27-year-old found out about Chris and Rihanna’s platonic relationship. “She knows they are in contact and it breaks her heart,” the insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s focused on her career but she can’t help but think about Chris. And thinking about him with Rihanna really upsets her.” Although Chris and Karrueche were in a loving relationship for roughly four years, Kae always had her suspicions about the “Loyal” singer and Rihanna.

Chris Brown Still In Love With Rihanna?

According to a report in Hollywood Life, the 27-year-old FourFiveSeconds hitmaker and the 26-year-old R&B singer have rekindled their relationship and Brown is falling for her all over again.

“He misses her. He always has. She’s a good woman and he loves her to death. He thinks she’s drop dead beautiful with a soul that only an angel could have,” a source told the website.

“He’d give anything just to have a meal with her. Not sex. Just a meal. Just to talk. Just to look at her and witness her beauty all over again,” the insider added.

“It’s the simple things he’s after these days,” the source continued. “He doesn’t know if it will happen but in the meantime, a man can dream, can’t he?”

The Loyal hitmaker had infamously assaulted the Grammy award winning singer in 2009. He hit her so forcefully that she had major bruises on her face, a split lip, and a bloody nose.

However, the two of them still have a strong and complicated bond, despite their public breakup.

Adding on, Brown, who recently admitted that he is still in love with Rihanna, wants her to perform with him while on his One Hell Of A Nite Tour.

“He’s been begging Rihanna to come and be a surprise performer on his tour,” another insider said. “He’d love to get up there on stage with her like they used to and get down on one of their past collaborations. You’re talking one hell of a night!”

Rihanna Joins ‘The Voice’ As Key Adviser For Season 9

It looks like NBC has got Rihanna’s money.

The network announced today that the superstar singer has joined Season 9 of The Voice.

With Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams all on board as coaches this fall, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt told reporters today at the TCA Press Tour in Beverly Hills that Rihanna will serve as a “key advisor” to them all.

It’s unclear what that means, but whatever. Rihanna will be a part of The Voice!

Levine and Shelton, of course, have been with The Voice since it premiere in 2011.

Williams is going into his third season, while Stefani joined back in season seven… though she took season eight off and Christina Aguilera jumped in to a red chair in her place.

18+: Rihanna’s ‘#BBHMM’ Video Is Brilliant, Terrifying, Complicated; Judge For Yourselves

The new, highly anticipated video for Rihanna’s “#BBHMM” is an epic, 7-minute visual kaleidoscope of style and excess and, as was clearly intended, it’s generated a lot of buzz since debuting online at midnight today. In the video, we watch Rih, accompanied by two silent minions, kidnap the modelesque wife of an accountant (surprise! Mads Mikkelsen) who owes her some serious coin. The sexualized violence in the video is graphic and disturbing (we’ll get to that in a minute), but overall the video is everything we love about Rihanna — it’s ballsy, edgy, explicit, and unapologetic.

Rihanna, Floyd Mayweather And Riri’s Duct Tape Goof Around At The BET Awards

So Riri was seen at the beginning of the event with some duct tape, and everyone wondered what it was for. Well, she tied up Floyd Mayweather with it and said ‘B#tch better have my money’, lol. She did the same thing to Boris Kodjo and his wife. She tied up their wrists with a rope, in front of her dressing room. All in good jest though. More photos below…

 

New Music Alert: Chris Brown Ft. Rihanna “Put It Up”

The former couple known for making interesting duos are reportedly back at it again. Okay, it may not be on purpose on this time. However, the track, leaked by L.A Leakers, was originally recorded for Chris Brown’s “X” album. The song was eventually scrapped from the album and stayed under the radar until today.

In the single titled, “Put It Up” the duo sing a sultry love-making song. Some of the lyrics include, “I’m gonna explore all over your body.” I’ll be the first to say I like this song more than their previous songs “Cake” and “Nobody’s Business.” If it was released with the X album, I’m sure it would have been a hit.

Rihanna Has The Best Advice For Young Women.

We’re not quite sure how it happened, but Rihanna might be our new favorite role model.

The pop star laid down some deep girl power thoughts during a press conference for her new film, Home. Rihanna voices the character of Tip, whom she described as “bold” and “comfortable” with herself, characteristics that resonate with her as a young woman.

The singer touched on the topic of self-respect and how that relates to the image of a strong female.

“The more we respect ourselves, the more men will respect us,” she told reporters. “I have both sides to me, and I think most women do. We are strong but they are very vulnerable as well. For me, I get very fierce and passionate about my career and about my family. But, there are also things that make me become a little girl. Like, I love balloons, that definitely really brings out the little girl in me.”

“I think women are way stronger than they know, or sometimes they do know, but they don’t always feel like being strong,” she added. “Sometimes, you’re like, ‘Can I get a pass?'”

You can’t get a pass, but we’ll give you a balloon. And, an “amen.” Preach it, girl. (Oh No They Didn’t)

How Jim Parsons Annoys Rihanna.

If you’ve ever belted out the lyric “yellow diamonds in the sun” from Rihanna’s “We Found Love,”  you’re not alone.

Jim Parsons – who is a voice actor with Rihanna in the Dreamworks animated film Home — told Jimmy Fallon that by being around her, her songs keep coming into his head.

While he can’t help but blurt them out, Rihanna is not much of a fan. Parsons reveals that she’ll look at him and say, “That gives me chills and not in a good way.” He adds that she’s “like please stop.”

Rihanna Dings Her Own Music, Says She Doesn’t Want to Perform Her Hits.

Unapologetic! Rihanna boasts a bevy of chart-topping singles, but the “FourFiveSeconds” singer admitted in a new interview with MTV that even she isn’t a fan of some of her hits.

“I’ve made a lot of songs that are just really, really big songs,” the Grammy winner, 27, told MTV when looking forward to her next album. “From the jump, they just blow up. And I wanted to kind of just get back to… not that they weren’t real music, but I just wanted to focus on things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever.”

 “I wanted songs that I could perform in 15 years,” Rihanna continued. “I wanted an album that I could perform in 15 years — not any songs that were burnt out. I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs because they don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.”

Whether she likes it or not, Leonardo DiCaprio’s rumored lady continues to perform the tracks that made her famous. This past August, she went on a quick tour with Eminem, playing earworms including 2008’s “Live Your Life,” 2009’s “Run This Town,” 2007’s “Umbrella,” and 2010’s “Rude Boy.”

Rih recently began work on her upcoming studio album, her first since 2012’s Unapologetic. The record, which included hits like “Stay” and “Pour It Up,” was certified platinum and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Currently without a release date, Rihanna’s eighth album R8 will be led by the Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaboration “FourFiveSeconds,” and executive produced by West.

Rihanna’s Response To Chris Brown Being A Dad Is Pretty Mature.

At least we hope so. Chris Brown just recently got the surprise of a lifetime when he found out he is the father of a 9-month-old baby girl. TMZ reportedly found out the singer is happy about being a father. The baby’s mother is a model named Nia, 31, whom Brown has reportedly known for years.

TMZ says the two are on good terms but are not romantically involved. The 25-year-old rapper has been on-again-off-again with model Karrueche Tran since 2011, but Brown’s most famous ex, singer Rihanna, responded to the news with the utmost professional and mature response ever.

Hollywood Life reported that an insider told them she was “shocked” and said, “[She] had to read the reports four times before it finally sunk in.” Of course, they continued, saying, ” …if it’s true, Chris will be a good father and take care of his little girl.”

Rihanna is much more judicious than I would have been given not only his terrible track record of taking care of his loved ones, but most recently, his interview with The Breakfast Club just a week and a half ago. The one where he said his ideal situation would have been to get Rihanna and Tran pregnant at the same time. On the morning show, he was asked about having kids, and he said, “At the time when I was doing my wam wam with both [Rihanna and Karrueche Tran], get both of them, then boom, I’m good. That would be my ultimate boom!”

Chris Brown & Rihanna Have Started Again!!!

A source has revealed that ”Chris and Rihanna just can’t cut off communication with one another. She actually wished Chris a happy birthday when he turned 25 last year, so he was returning the favour by wishing her many happy returns on Friday.

”They don’t talk every day. Occasionally, one will reach out to the other once a month, but it’s very harmless. They still have a fondness for one another, despite everything that went on, but don’t have any romantic feelings.”

His recent communication with the ‘FourFiveSeconds’ hitmaker – who turned 27 on Friday – is said to have upset his on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

The source told HollywoodLife.com: ”Karrueche isn’t happy about it. She doesn’t think Chris should be contacting his exes and should concentrate on her. ”He doesn’t listen, however, and likes to stay friends with former girlfriends, much to her annoyance.”
